It’s publication day! Empire of the Sum: The Rise and Reign of the Pocket Calculator is published today in the USA.* You can order a copy from from Norton, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, Bookshop.org, Hudson, IndieBound, Powell’s, Target or Walmart.
There are many people to thank for helping make this happen: my agent Laurie Abkemeier; Brendan Curry, Caroline Adams, and Anna Oler at W. W. Norton; Judith Abbate for design; and Rachelle Mandik for copyediting. And of course, my wife Leigh helped out at every stage — she has read Empire cover to cover many times over by now, and it’s all the better for it.
I hope you enjoy the book, and please let me know what you think!
- For readers in the rest of the world, the book will be published in October. ↢
